P.S. Garcia "Bravado" Itata Valley '17

Winemaker of P.S. Garcia, Felipe Garcia, was inspired by the experience he gained working for larger wineries. He was inspired to not only begin his very own winery, but was inspired to do the opposite of he saw working for others, and to scale back and focus on small, mindful production.

Inspired at first by old-vine Carignan from Maule, he since has started two of Chile’s most influential small producer movements today: MOVI (Movement of Independent Vintners) and VIGNO (Vignadores de Carignan). Garcia considers this a declaration for "true Chilean wine." Now, it's considered the "New Chile" revolution, centering around smaller producers seeking to express the terroir of Chile.

Producers like P.S. Garcia are exactly the kind of winemakers we want to support. Garcia's wines can really express a true sense of terroir by carefully tending to his vines, some of which are quite old, by encouraging them to root down and produce such expressive wines that can connect the consumer to place.

The "Bravada" selection is a blend of primarily Syrah and Carignan, with small percentages of Mourvèdre and Petit Verdot. The vines are as old as 120 years old! Sourced from the Piedra Lisa Vineyard and the Bellavista Vineyard, both in Itata Valley and both high elevation sites, sitting a little over 500 feet.

After fermentation is complete, the wine is aged for 18 months in third and fourth use, neutral French oak. With deep, sensuous fruit notes at its core, the aromas and flavor invite a bramble of flavors - blackberry, blueberry and cherry with spiced tones and bright acidity to balance it all out. This is a wonderful pairing with grilled food, and hearty winter-inspired meals.
